I was going for a bottle of beer yesterday when I stumbled on this unlikely couple of a young Lagos boy and an old white woman, I suddenly remembered the speech of a chairman of the occasion at a wedding I attended, last year, between an old German lady in her 60s and a young Nigerian boy who was definitely in his 20s. Just when I was wondering how absurd the union is the so called chairman of the occasion in his speech at the reception described the wedding as a union of “opportunity meets preparation”. I was shock-sprised at his apt description of this dubious union; this generation has totally degenerated such that we no longer know what is required for a marriage.

Either we choose to discuss it or not it is a new and thriving small-scale-tsunami that has stemmed from our economic woes and the desperation to seek survival in developed lands.
If we do not seriously watch it by instilling values in our children in a couple of decades with the help of internet our hopelessly failing economy our entire young male population would have been exported as either baby makers or sex slaves as I do know how else to explain a union of “opportunity meets preparation” between a woman of 60 and a lad of 20.
